2 Eels Same Tank

So hears the deal I have a 75 reef (Yes I know this is the FOWLR section of the forum but I know this was a better suited question for you guys) I currently have on 16-18" snowflake eel he is very well behaved and I have had it for 6 months now the worst he's ever done is flipped hermit crabs on their backs and that's it after that he leaves them alone. I am adding a Freckled Moray (Echidna Nocturna) aka Palenose Moray I know that you don't know what that is and neither does the Shedd or Denver aquarium yes I called them. As far as I know so far there is only 2 in the hobby including mine and both were sold on LiveAquaria Divers Den in the past two weeks now I'm sure they have been kept in the hobby before but well I mean you go and try some info on it. My snowflake eel isn't territorial in the least I mean he shares his den with 7 blue green chromis during the night and has never bothered one of them. So here's the catch my new eel is only 9" long g to the page on DD and last thing I need is him getting ripped apart. I would much rather have the freckled over the snowflake but my snowflake is just so peaceful and has freaking awesome pattern. Do think I'll have issues? If you think I need to get rid of the snowflake I am willing to take him into my Lfs and swap him out for a 9" snowflake but if that's the case how do I catch him with out ripping apart the aqua scape? The freckled gets here tomorrow and I could throw him in quarantine but I don't really have to because his delivery was delayed for two weeks and he had already made it through LAs 2 week quarantine process and was there for an additional 2 weeks and they are well known for disease and parasite free fish. Should I give it a chance with both of them in the tank?
